Subject Re: Handling many versions, disposing/swapping out old ones

Hi Alex, hi list,

The versions are indeed created by humans. :) While the users publish 
new content the system creates one version each time. This is needed for 
legal issues. One use case is to get a version from a certain date.

The customer creating this vast amount of versions is a editorial 
working 24/7. The system is running nearly 1,5 years now. So 50 versions 
a day is quite normal.

As already mentioned we can't/are not allowed to remove old versions. So 
there would be only the option of swapping out old versions.
Maybe we could create an additional workspace we use for archiving these 

Many thanks in advance!
